Good morning, girl! What can you tell me about bird feeders?
Yes, bird feeders. 🙂
a little entirely off topic, but yesterday, before I got my hair cut, I swung by my local hardware store to pick up some gardening supplies and spent a long time in the bird feeder aisle.
I love hearing birds sing outside my window, and I bet a feeder would bring even more of them around. I could go with one of those small wire feeders that fit pre-molded seed bricks — they look like starter models. The cream of the crop feeders look like little wooden houses. Those are the sports cars of the bird feeding world, LOL!
Anywho, wasn’t this a great week for makeup and beauty? Three of the big brands kinda surprised me — MAC, YSL and China Glaze. Each of them brought their A games this time around.
Here’s a quick look back at some of my favorite posts of the week…
Hope you’re having a great Sunday so far! Let me know what you’re up to.
Tuesday Beauty Tips: Boosting Your Confidence
“I know several cats (myself included) who are BIG fans. CBT techniques are based on the notion that behaviors and feelings stem from the ways in which you see yourself and your life. The five steps in the article can help you recognize, challenge and ultimately replace negative thoughts with more positive ones.”
How Adventurous Are You with Your Skin Care Routine?
“It’s got a light beachy scent, and the little exfoliating scrubbies feel great. I think it’s a solid cleanser, too (hope it doesn’t break me out!). It made my face feel clean after I used it but not tight. Washing with it I got to thinking about skin care routines and how I don’t really have a rigorous long-term one.”
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick in Pink Lychee Lasts but a Moment, yet Still Makes an Impression
“Texture wise, Pink Lychee feels great, thanks to a hydrating formula similar to MAC Glaze Lipstick. It’s smooth, thin, feels light, and when I rub my lips together with it on they just glide back and forth — no resistance at all. Plus, I like the scent, which reminds me of Granny Smith apples, and added SPF 15. :)”
MAC Unsung Heroes: Woodwinked Eyeshadow Fakes a Good Night’s Sleep
“MAC Woodwinked Eyeshadow ($14.50) rocks harder than Metallica. Like a beauty BFF, this shimmery shadow’s been with me through good times and bad. Brown in the pan, it applies like a lovely warm gold, and I find myself still reaching for it often because it’s one of those disbelief-suspending shades able to fake a good night’s sleep.”
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss: Smooth Texture, High Shine
“They’re unscented but do have a mild brown sugar taste I don’t mind. As for how they feel — I mentioned that I didn’t detect any plumping, right? — the medium-weight thickness feels comfortable, non-sticky and smooth, and it makes them easy to wear. They also don’t creep past my natural lip line, either.”
YSL Blue Lagoon Mascara Aquaresistant: A Cure for the Blues?
“Some tinted mascaras just don’t show up on my dark black lashes at all. Maybe they aren’t thick enough or don’t catch the light effectively, I don’t know, but Blue Lagoon practically SHOUTS! And then there’s the curl hold — Off. The. Hook. One coat tightly locks in the curl from my Shu Uemura Lash Curler.”
I’ve Got Bette Davis Eyes for These China Glaze Vintage Vixen Nail Lacquers for Fall 2010
“Sparkle’s a key player in this drama, as the entire cast of characters features some kind of light-catching finish, ranging from micro-glitters to frosts to shimmers. It’s been a recurring theme for China Glaze’s fall collections, with both of the previous two, Retro Diva and Rodeo Diva, doing something similar.”
MAC To The Beach: Breaking Waves and Hearts
“If I close my eyes and picture the delicious greens and corals in the collection, I feel relaxed and happy; if I listen hard enough and breath deeply, I can almost hear waves breaking and smell the salty air. Can I just take a second to marvel at the packaging? We’re talking ’70s, but in the best possible way.”
